You can do irreversible damage to your enamel by doing those.
Laser or zoom teeth whitening is a non invasive treatment that can brighten your smile to minimum 6 shades without damages cause it s done by a GDC registered dentist.
Zoom whitening is a solution for dull or discolored teeth. Zoom is a specialized system utilized right in the office to achieve same-day results for brighter teeth. This treatment is achieved with the use of high quality solutions and is administered by our experienced dental staff. Unlike over-the-counter treatment options, this method offers a solution that can brighten the teeth up to eight shades whiter in just one dental visit atHarley street 86 by Dr Elena. Professional teeth whitening is no longer just for the elite, but can be used by every day patients looking to enhance their smiles.
The process begins with an evaluation appointment. This allows Dr. Elena to determine if patients are appropriate candidates for treatment. Not everyone is well-suited for whitening with this method. Patients with restorations including bridges, crowns, and veneers will want to consider replacement of these restorations before having their teeth brightened. This can add to the overall cost.
Once patients are determined to be appropriate candidates for the Zoom teeth whitening program, then an appointment is made. At the start of the visit, the dental hygienists will provide a thorough cleaning of the teeth, just as they do during routine dental visits. Once plaque and tartar have been removed from the teeth and gums, the process of whitening begins. Barrier gel is applied to the gum tissue to prevent burning, and then the bleaching gel is applied to all the visible surfaces of the natural teeth. Using a dedicated whitening light, patients rest easy while the whitening gel on the teeth is activated with lights aimed in the mouth. After approximately 45 minutes, the gels are removed from the teeth and gums and the dentist provides a thorough cleaning. When patients leave the office, they are able to share their newly brightened smile with others!
The best candidates for Zoom teeth whitening are patients who do not have restorations in their smile. This may include:
If these are in place and currently match the smile, they may be problematic when patients undergo Zoom whitening. This is because the bleaching gel does not lift stains or change the color of these restorations. This means that after the whitening process, these restorations will look dark and discolored when compared to the rest of the smile. Patients serious about whitening their smile and maintaining the results may want to ask about using Zoom and then having their restorations removed and replaced. This adds to the cost and patients should consider this after being fully educated on the process of maintaining their whiter smile over the course of time to keep the natural teeth in line in terms of color with their restorations. However, when done correctly and when patients maintain their whitening results, this can be a wise investment in the smile overall.
Unsightly yellow teeth are one of the biggest confidence killers when it comes to your smile. Luckily, Zoom!Whitening provides results you’ll have to see to believe, bringing your teeth several shades whiter for a smile that puts the ‘pearl’ in pearly whites.
With results this drastic, it’s only natural that the treatment would have a few requirements for aftercare. Here’s everything you can expect after your Zoom! whitening procedure, as well as a couple of dentist-recommended tips on making the most of your smile.
Your teeth are more susceptible to stains for up to 48 hours after treatment, so it’s important to take careful consideration of the foods and beverages you consume the first few days post-whitening. You’ll want to snack smart after Zoom! to ensure you don’t undo the results of your investment.
To prevent any premature discoloration, avoid dark-colored substances such as:
If you absolutely must get your caffeine fix, be sure to use a straw so that the beverages don’t come into contact with your newly whitened teeth.
But it’s not just what you put in your mouth that runs the risk of dimming your brighter teeth. Even lipstick can make its mark on your smile if you accidentally get some on your teeth. So, be mindful not just about what you put in your mouth, but around it, too!
OUR TIP: As an added precautionary step, use over-the-counter whitening products such as mouthwash, toothpaste, and chewing gum after ingesting any foods or liquids that may cause stains. If possible, many dentists recommend maintaining a select “white diet during this period, meaning you only consume white or clear foods and beverages (such as milk, egg whites, and bananas).
As a rule, if it can stain a white t-shirt, it can also stain your smile.
Over time, the results of your Zoom! treatment will start to fade. That doesn’t mean that you need to hop back into the dentist’s chair for another session, though.
After your initial procedure, your dentist will supply you with custom-fitted trays and a distinct Zoom! solution to use as needed. With your at-home whitening kit, you can put the dazzle back in your smile from the comfort of your home – no need to schedule an extra dentist appointment!
OUR TIP: As with most things in life, proper care and maintenance make all the difference in how long your whitening treatment lasts. Utilize the take-home whitening system once every four to six months for a quick touch-up that gives your smile an added color boost.
While extreme discomfort after treatment is uncommon, a small number of patients do report experience heightened sensetivity from Zoom! Whitening. This discomfort presents itself as a bothersome tingling sensation, often referred to as ‘zingers,’ on your teeth. To combat this symptom, Zoom! comes with a special anti-sensitivity gel to take home with you. If sensitivity occurs, this solution should be placed in your custom trays and worn for 30 minutes at night until the discomfort subsides.
If the gel isn’t enough to ease your symptoms, we recommend taking anti-inflammatory medication as directed. You can also purchase over the counter toothpaste that aids in treating sensitivity to use until your teeth return to their normal sensitivity levels.
OUR TIP: Teeth whitening is a safe, painless procedure for most. However, excessive treatment and overuse of whitening gel can be highly damaging to the health of your teeth and gums. Whether you choose Zoom! Whitening or another treatment for your smile, be sure to follow your dentist’s maintenance instructions carefull
